Review finding the subject and verbs wheeeee

Linking Verb or Action Verb?

Linking verbs link the cookie to a word in the predicate. When the cookie is the subject, it is not performing an action and is not able to smell, taste, touch. However . . .

When the sentence is about someone eating, smelling, or tasting the cookie, there is action being performed. The verb is then an action verb.
